– Nisemonogatari (Histoires d`Imposture)
Nisemonogatari is part 2 of the first season of Monogatari, which contains 11 episodes. Technically it is part of the first season, but it was released almost 3 years later.
There is way more nudities and ecchi-ness this time around. It’s a good, or bad, thing depending on which spectrum you are on. Though some of the gags are correlated to the sexual situation, it can seldom be a bit too much and goes into the taboo area. I cringe during all the brother and sister complex gags. Part 1 was a TV-14 rating while part 2 is TV-MA.
The conversations are just as funny and punny as always. Again it is still a dialog dense narrative but it is more streamlined than part 1. There are less distracting arbitrary cuts that do nothing to the story. You will also notice less 3D CGI. The 3D CGI is still being used, just less pronounced. Due to this, the excellent art and animation stand-out more.
The overall theme of “fakes” is interpreted especially well and makes this entry worth the watch.
I recommend part 2 to a fan of Monogatari that don’t mind the ecchi. Nisemonogatari contains graphic violence, nudities, and heavy suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for mature audiences.
